Remove the CMOS Button battery for 5 minutes (Located on the mother board inside the computer) and that will clear the password protection, the other option is to buy the recovery disks and reload operating system.

How do I log in. reset password


Nearly all routers will have the password printed on the bottom. If it doesn't say password it may be just a series of letters and numbers with the login being admin as the default. Older routers use just admin for the login and password for the default password. Some it's admin and admin for both. To get to the login screen you would need to enter your gateway IP in a web browser, that is the same as your IP address except ends in a 1. Example http://192.168.1.1 will give you the default page on many home routers. Once logged in it is mostly self explanatory. With newer routers being much better. Without details on router brand and model or version of operating system you are using this is as close as it gets.

Password cracker


You need the original install disks for you OS. Start the install process and then use the Password Reset tool to change the admin password. Once you are able to log in as admin, you should be able to see your old account in the System/Users folder. You should be able to directly access it, or you should be able to use the "Get Info" on the account's folder and change the permissions that way.

Need password to internet


You can't.

What you can do is reset the entire router. There should be a button on the back you can press in with a paper clip, hold it down for a few seconds, lights should flash.

Your router will then be reset to factory defaults. Without any more information I can not tell you how to find the default user/pass to log in.

I forgot my password for my new imac and dont have da disk..


To reset your OS X password without an OS X CD you need to enter terminal and create a new admin account:
  1. Reboot
  2. Hold apple + s down after you hear the chime.
  3. When you get text prompt enter in these terminal commands to create a brand new admin account (hitting return after each line):
    • mount -uw /
    • rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone
    • shutdown -h now
  4. After rebooting you should have a brand new admin account. When you login as the new admin you can simply delete the old one and you’re good to go again!
Give me credit once it has been resolved. Thanks!
